"This is kind of the opposite of what I did with FANTASTIC FOUR, what I’m doing with AVENGERS. A lot of FANTASTIC FOUR was going back and looking at old runs and seeing what worked and what didn’t work, and taking the good stuff out and reintroducing it. The goal, though, was to make the franchise really relevant again. This isn’t the same thing. The Avengers are more relevant than they’ve ever been at any point in the history of the franchise. It’s stronger now than it has ever been. Going back and looking at a bunch of old stuff, regardless of how fond I am of it—and there’s certainly stuff that I really really like—I think it’s the wrong move to try and revisit old territory. I think that would be a mistake, and so I’ve intentionally gone the other way." - Jonathan Hickman

I picked up a few regular comics as well as the free ones on Free Comic Book Day. After the previous post where young Nova asks some semi-relevant questions, I noticed that he's doing it again in Original Sin #0.

As the new kid on the block, I guess it's only fair that he gets to be the viewpoint character for expository information.

Marvel teased another event today even though the first issue of "Age of Ultron" isn't out yet.

Billed as the "grandest Marvel Comics event of all time," this teaser reveals the contents of Marvel's Free Comic Book Day issue for 2013.

A VS. X makes it clear Cyclops is acting like a total jerk. And I wish it was Out Of Character for him, that some desperate hope Jean will come back is overriding his better judgement. Except it isn't. Cyclops being a jerk is standing operating procedure pretty much since DECIMATION started, if not before.

Comixology's Marvel Half off Monday sale this week includes Illuminati. Yes, the entire Bendis/Cheung series is available for the princely sum of $4.95 (or £3something).

I know that I've already posted 4 pages from this issue already, and it's 4 very funny pages. It's the time that Bendis's Bendisisms actually worked and is some of the funnest and funniest Marvel stuff that I've read.

However, there's still a fair bit of gravitas and serious stuff in the series. To be honest, I can't think of any of Bendis' Avengers stuff that's come close to this quality in recent years, except for the Sentry/Norman Osborn chat that ended with them going to Five Guys Burgers

Each issue of the series tied in to an event or character in Marvel history.
#1 was the Illuminati sorting out the Skrulls, thus guaranteeing a Secret Invasion
#2 was the Illuminati collecting the Infinity Gems (how did that recent Avengers storyline finish?
#3 was the Illuminati versus the Beyonder
#4 was the Illuminati doing their Sex and the City chat and then trying to put Marvel Boy on the straight and narrow by smashing his head into a stone wall
and #5 was the reveal that one of the Illuminati was a Skrull.

This comes from #4, where Reed Richards is giving Marvel Boy a pep-talk. )

And Mods, are we having another 30 days theme this winter?
